2002 Toyota Tacoma Xtracab 2dr Xtracab V6 4WD SB (3.4L 6cyl 5M)


Review

This is my second Tacoma. My first was
a 99, 4 cyl, 4WD, Xcab. It was totaled
in an accident. Ended up rolling it at
55mph and walked away w/out a scratch.
The truck’s design and construction
saved my life! Bought a new 01, V6,
4WD, Xcad. Don’t have one complain
about either. It’s great in the mud
and snow with the right set of tires.
I have accumulated 80K+ miles with both
trucks and never had a problem with
either one. Just have regular
maintenance done. Can’t even complain
about a rattle or squeak. I would put
my money down another one without
thinking about it.


Best Features

Great style, solid construction, reliability, a good balance of off and on road ability, great engines to choose from, push button 4WD on the go, and an interior that wants you to come in and play.


Worst Features

Move the clock so the steering wheel does block it's view. Use heavier gage steel for the tailgate to resist denting.

Review

Still a great truck! Performance,
reliability, and looks are awesome.
Only complaints are annoying dashboard
rattles and cheap plastic interior. My
small dogs (and I) scratch the
vinyl/plastic in the interior. My
wife's Blazer's interior is more
resilient! Also ,as others have
stated, clock is in stupid place. It's
great in the snow, and handles like a
small car. Still the best compact
truck out there! Definitely worth the
extra price.


Best Features

Engine performance, handling, and looks.


Worst Features

Overall interior quality - seats, dashboard rattles, and clock.

Review

Had this truck for four months
now, and absolutely love it. It's
not perfect, but it's definitely a
quality vehicle. Ride is a little
bouncy, especially on concrete
interstates (asphalt is
smooth as glass). Couldn't afford the
V6, but the 4 cyl. does fine. I don't
do a lot of heavy-duty hauling or
towing, so the HP is more than
adequate. Getting 21 mpg avg and
as much as 25 mpg on the open road.
It's a great hill climber, creek
splasher and rock rider and I've spent
many fun hours off-road, exploring
places I've never been before. But
clean it up and shine it up and, man,
it takes to city streets like a Jaguar
to the jungle. And chicks love it!


Best Features

Fit and finish are excellent; body design is classy and sexy; sound system is superb; love the height of the vehicle. It sits up nice and high on its 16" wheels; like the automatic shutoff for the headlights when you exit the vehicle.


Worst Features

Seat belts tend to be too tight; seat cloth (velour?) ages quickly and poorly; clock placement is poor; windshield needs more height; fender flares can pull loose in carwashes, so avoid carwashes
